Sleeved dresses in sturdier fabrications are still few and far between, especially if you’re after a style in a longer length. Although most of these dresses are still above the knee, remember that the models are tall, and that the dresses could fall at a longer length on you. 

I’ve been so into trousers for the last few years that I’ve barely given frocks a glance for my own style, especially because so many of them have been flimsy and too short. I might be a devil and snap up a frock for Summer. Or I might stick to full skirts.
